Matera - The European Capital of Culture

Kulturhauptstadt Matera - Von der Steinzeit in den Cyberspace

Matera in Southern Italy is the European Capital of Culture in 2019. The city is considered to be one of the longest continually inhabited places in the world. People have lived in the Sassi cave dwellings in Matera for 9,000 years and the caves have turned the city into a popular location for international film productions. Whilst poverty, degeneration, youth emigration and organised crime are prevalent throughout Southern Italy, the opposite trend is evident in Matera. The film follows a group of young creative types who have consciously chosen to return to Matera and have set up the «Casa Neutral» co living collective there. Their project aims to demonstrate the creative possibilities of a community in the age of the internet, even in a rural area.
